Hope floats, all othes wear jackets

Golllllleee, who knew?

Waterfowl hunters throughout Indiana are being strongly reminded, by Indiana Conservation Officers, that a life jacket will not work unless it is being worn.
"Our "Wear It" campaign to promote life jacket use is not just for the warm weather months" said Michael Crider, Director of the Department of Natural Resources Law Enforcement Division.

Don't spread it around, but I hear it's the same deal with seat belts and motorcycle helmets. Calling Tom Wyss!

It has come to my attention Senator Wyss will be introducing legislation to ensure all waterfowl hunters are also wearing rubber boots, long johns and are found to NOT be in possession of caffeinated coffee (de-caf is allowable as it won't make you jittery).
Decaf thermos registration numbers WILL be checked as will rubber boot size to assure compliance is 100%.

Senator Wyss was heard to remark "I can't bear to think of another family going through the horrors of returning home from a waterfowl hunting expedition with wet feet, and caffeine jitters. I'm doing it for the kids"

Hey, I even got my 2 cats life jackets for Christmas...JUST in case my TOILET ever overflows...
(Getting them ON the cats WILL be interesting.)

Better to be safe than sorry, I always say.

How 'bout YOU, Leo?
